Music Currently Inspiring Blinded

If only I could listen to every song and write nonstop for 13 days!

I cannot write without music.

TENDERFOOT was written on: 3 computers, loose-leaf paper, notebooks, napkins, and a receipt. (It was a really great idea!)

TENDERFOOT¬†was written at:¬†my one hundred year old tiny cherry desk with the finish rubbing off underneath my wrists, in the back of a minivan with the kids bouncing around, in my brother’s apartment in NYC, on vacation in upstate NY, and at work in between phone calls.

The constant? Music. iPhone.
